The DEA just doesn`t have the manpower to enforce minor infractions, they just expect the states to enforce it or inform federal of bigger operations.

I don`t care one way or the other about legalization, but yes, this guy was far and away breaking the rules set up for dispensaries.

I live in California, and one of the things I can say is that our "mostly-legalization" has virtually eliminated street dealers. To me, that`s a serious plus.

Actually, Gerry, feds do have a right to ban substances with a constitutional amendment. The current justification for the war on drugs is rather wodgy though (way overstepping on the commerce clause). It should likely be a states rights, with federal restrictions on transportation between states (via actual meaning behind the commerce clause). I believe it were struck down you`d see the laws replaced through amendment quickly, there is a need to protect at the borders. This is what happened in the article, actually.

It has always been about money, the 1937 Tax Act killed the hemp growing commodity in the US, which pushed the need for alternatives like synthetic fabrics created by Dupont, it made them rich.
Lobbyists pay big bucks to stall stuff in congress, and we all know politians love money, so there you have it. Its been this way for years, you expect it to stop now...what are you thinking, they like it this way they aren`t going to change a damn thing.
I am an Iowa native, I have watched meth almost dominate our state, things would change here if the meth addicts could legally smoke pot instead.

Another article, this one from the California State Attorney`s office. Outlining other cases of people grossly violating the law and being arrested. Things like selling across state lines.

Come on people. How can you believe such an obvious one sided hit piece. Here is the other side. The California law states that if you are going to run a dispensary you have to be non-profit. They were keeping an incredible profit. If you look even further it was actually the county that called the Feds on him. And the Feds sent the company a warning 8 months earlier. When they didn`t comply they got raided. None of the dispensaries that are following the non-profit law are being raided. Don`t get me wrong. I`m all for legalizing marijuana and I am all for making huge profits but that is not what this law did. Little steps. We`ll get there. But it is guys like this that are hurting not helping us get there.

nettech98, yes Federal law trumps state law. But the Feds have no business banning any substance. States rights to decide what is and is not legal. For alcohol they had to do a constitutional ammendment to ban it because Feds don`t have that authority. That`s why some states have gambling, others don`t. Feds cannot make those choices for the states.

Yet for WackyTobacci they just decided one day to sign it into law. It needs challenged in the courts. It`s not constitutional to outlaw it.

Are you an idiot or are did you not pay attention? He was arrested for selling marijuana. THAT answers your question.

Possesing alcohol was once punishable by jail time in this country. To the point, the law simply shouldn`t exist, and thus the "criminals" never deserved to go to jail for the "crime" they commited.

Too bad Obama wasn`t caught for his admitted pot smoking. He would have never become president. Hypocrite.
Drugs should be legal. Ron Paul 2012.

The role or the Federal Government was supposed to be limited to National Defense and Interstate Commerce. Who the hell gave them the authority to even enact the Controlled Substances Act ?? If grow your pot and keep it in state they "should" have no bearing on it ... but it`s too big now to stop it. Our only hope is to wait for the reefer madness generation to die off.

Obombya the weed smoking warmonger back off on the business of cheap prison slave labor? Not a damn chance. He will put your ass in the pokey even though the bastard never served time for his use of weed. He too likes to bomb and make war just like his dimwitted and drug using predecessor. The U.S. is ran by psychopathic, low life, double-standard, war loving, criminal crapballs.

I absolutely hate watching videos like this where people are turned into victims without seeing the other half of the story. This video shows nothing about what he actually did to be arrested. it shows nothing about the evidence against him. he could have been taking marijuana out of state to sell it. he could be selling to people without recommendations. the video does not address the circumstances surrounding the arrest or the evidence against him. he may be a victim, i dont know, but you cant say he is innocent based solely on a video made to make him look innocent. dont be swayed by a one sided argument. it is sick to be up in arms over something you dont know all the facts to.

Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as the Supremacy Clause, establishes the U.S. Constitution, U.S. Treaties, and laws made pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, shall be "the supreme law of the land." The text decrees these to be the highest form of law in the U.S. legal system, and mandates that all state judges must follow federal law when a conflict arises between federal law and either the state constitution or state law of any state. (Note that the word "shall" is used, which makes it a necessity, a compulsion.)

Is it a war on drugs or a war on freedom? F**k the Feds. And f**k Obama for going back on his word.

The folks who stood up against prohibition are considered heroes, yet the ones who stand up against unjust marijuana laws are criminals that should spend as much time in jail as someone who commits a murder? Give me a break. Time to dump these ridiculous anti-drug laws.

Isn`t Amarica great!
It doesn`t matter if the people voted to legalize it.
Our elected officials who represent us? have decided they
know better than we do. I`m glad Daddy-Government is there
to protecte me from myself!

I love my country. - I fear my government.

I think something is missing here.
Was there too much inventory related to his license?

"We`re populating our prisons with people who really shouldn`t be there."

Really? You break the law, you go to prison. Seems like they are right where they belong.

If the law is wrong, as many will argue about pot, it doesn`t mean you don`t belong in prison for breaking it.

Medical Marijuana is, in the eyes of the US Federal government, the same as recreational marijuana. If you are in possession of it, you are breaking federal laws.

NOTE! I`m not commenting on the ethical nature of the federal laws, and I`m not commenting on how good or bad marijuana is. I`m just stating the fact that it is against federal law, and the federal government has the right to arrest you and put you in prison, even if the states say you can have it.
